- Did you have a favorite issue this week?
I’m definitely going with Wonder Woman. I thought it had the most interesting hook, and while I feel like Rucka’s runs on Wonder Woman are a bit overrated, he has her character and voice down pat in this story.
Also, I got a horrible laugh out of Lord’s “All aboard the Ted Kord Express!”
- Was anything surprising to see?
Initially, I was surprised to see that the JSA mini was in a sense a continuation/sequel to the Blackest Night: Superman series. I guess it shouldn’t have been that surprising, since it’s the same creative team, but it was a cool connection, one of those things that makes reading these big superhero crossover events fun.
But overall, yeah, I’d definitely go with Kyle’s death. I mean, I know he doesn’t kick the bucket for long, since I’ve seen him alive in stories after this and, y’know, comics, but still!
- Meanwhile, back on Oa, what’s your favorite panel from the battle for the central battery?
Hmm, going further with the Kyle stuff, his last stand was really well done. Them taking the Red Lantern out of his sciencell was also not just clever, but goes to show just how desperate the situation is.
